So, who hates the gym? Or working out? I’ll admit it, I loathe it. I don’t feel like seeing anyone while I’m pouring sweat, I also don’t want to battle the after work traffic or try and fit it in during lunch. It’s not so much about the workout, it’s the steps to getting there. So, I find it a lot easier to do in the comfort of my own home. Even if it’s just 15 min a day, I try to do something. If I’m totally not feeling it, stretching or some simple yoga poses are my go-to.
I think everyone has a workout they prefer, you just have to figure out what it is. I am NOT a runner. I like doing barre classes and yoga. Some people like high energy/high intensity. I also like things you can do from home so I’ll include a few things below that will help you get in the groove if you are stuck in a lull. I like making my own routine, or even spreading it out throughout the day. I don’t want to be stressed about trying to make it to a workout class on time. Classes and gyms can cause people some people anxiety because everyone does things at a different pace. Working out at home keeps me zen still feeling good.
No more excuses for this mama!
